Welcome to Caldwell!

Welcome to Caldwell!

Welcome to Caldwell!
It's been a week full of change here in Idaho!

We finished up our time at Warm Lake camp by completing as many projects as we could. We completed the fire mitigation work and finished the cabins we were working on. We also got a chance to do some touch up paint on the exterior of a few cabins as well as the main chapel building. The camp also asked us to do a couple smaller projects before we helped clean up and reset the camp on Saturday. God graciously provided our team with a place to stay in Caldwell that would prevent the risk of spreading any sort of sickness to the church congregants at Caldwell First Baptist church, where we'd originally planned to stay. A small, empty rental house was provided where we have plenty of room for everyone to sleep, shower, do laundry, and hold our classes in the evenings. We moved into the house on Saturday and were able to listen to a guest speaker for our evening devotion time. She talked about her work with the Jesus Film project as well as some other missionary work, and the blessing of having God's word in one's own language. The team enjoyed having a guest speaker who they could ask questions about missionary work. On Sunday, we attended Caldwell First Baptist church and listened to a wonderful sermon on servanthood. Afterwards, we were able to practice our verse quizzing before heading to a barbeque hosted by a missionary friend. The family hosting us was able to share about their missionary experience in Mongolia and present the team with their perspective in overseas mission work. The team enjoyed having the time to relax and hear from overseas missionaries. 

One big change for us is that Mission Aviation Fellowship is unable to have us work in their facility due to our recent exposure to Covid. We did, however, have an opportunity on Monday to visit their display room and gift shop, as well as hear from a staff member, who shared with us about the work MAF does around the world. In order to replace the work, we would have been doing with MAF, the kids will be able to do projects for Caldwell First Baptist church and some of its congregants. 
Even with the changes, God has been faithful to provide for our team in all areas. Please continue to pray that we would remain healthy, strong, and a blessing to those we are working with! 
Rebekah G. "Hello. I am starting to feel a little bit homesick now that we left camp. We aren't going to work at MAF anymore, but we are still going to the MAF museum. The camp was fun and the mountains were beautiful. I have been taking lots of pictures. I am learning a lot and still learning more. Covid keeps changing things, but I am learning to trust God. I miss everyone and I love everyone! Excited for the rest of the summer. During quizzing I got my first verse correct! I said two, but on my first one time ran out. But for Psalm 19:14 I got points for my team."
Bea E. "Hello people, I am having a really fun time! We just finished at the camp and we were there for three weeks. We are right now trying to find extra projects. Love Bea."
Isaac B. "We finished our last week of camp, during the week we didn't do much but paint. We moved into an empty rental house that's about 1500 square feet. It's small, but it's got A/C!"
Abraham C. "Two more weeks at Idaho and one more week at boot camp! Idaho is hot and dry."
Hannah I. "I love and miss you family! There's so much smoke from fires here that probably ten years have been taken off my lifespan because of how much smoke my lungs have taken in. Dad, come fight the fire, because they obviously need it! Hope you guys are having fun in Sanibel! Love Hannah."
Shelbi K. "We went to Mr. and Mrs. Decker's house and ate lunch, and now we are going to do a barbeque. I'm excited!"
Collin O. "I'm lowkey ready to be home. We drove to Oregon today. We are about to have a cookout!"

Idaho

Our team is 21 strong. They got busy memorizing Scripture and helping one another get organized in their tents. We experienced our first rainstorm on Registration night, but everyone has had nice dry tents!! Orientation day went well as people got to know each other better. We ran the OC for the first time that day and learned a lot. Everyone had a lot of fun, and the formation of team unity has begun! Right now, we have 11 girls and 10 boys.

Greetings from the Lord's Boot Camp!

Over the last couple days, there has been a vast improvement in our teamwork! The kids are encouraging one another and working together to improve on the Obstacle Course each day. The kids have been taking block-laying, concrete, digging, and steel tying classes in the morning.

The Idaho team is doing well at boot camp...

This week we will start some new classes. Puppets and Advanced Evangelism are new to us on the schedule along with balloons.

Finishing Strong

Today is our last day of classes! The kids have been doing an amazing job on the obstacle course working together and avoiding disqualifications. Yesterday two of the leaders ran with them and they got 17 people over the wall!

The Idaho team arrived safely there

The Idaho team made it safe and sound last night!

Welcome to Warm Lake Camp

We arrived late Sunday night to Boise and got to the church around midnight. We let them sleep in until 8:00 and had a nice breakfast provided to us from a special lady at the church.

We are starting to settle into a routine of sorts here at Warm Lake Bible Camp.

A New Week Has Begun

Greetings from Idaho! It's been a relaxing weekend as we finished up our work week on Friday. The team did a wonderful job and made excellent progress on our brush clearing and wood removal projects on Friday. Even though some of the team wasn't feeling very well, everyone did their best and worked together well to help out those that were moving a little bit slower. By the end of work, everyone was ready for the fun and rest we had planned for the weekend!

Adventure in Idaho

What a week it has been so far! The kids are continuing to work hard on fire mitigation, while also preparing the cabins to be prepped and painted.

One more week at Camp

Wow! It is hard to believe that we have been on the field at Warm Lake Camp for two weeks already. Thursday we had a long work day after our day off of rafting. As we have been sharing during the campers Mission Hour, we are trying to show different aspects of Teen Missions that we use on the field.

Last Few Days at Camp


It is hard to believe that we have been at Warm Lake Bible Camp for almost three weeks now. The camp is looking amazing!

From the Heights to the Depths

This week, the team was able to experience many unexpected but wonderful things. With plans changing in regards to working with Mission Aviation Fellowship this week, we were able to do a sightseeing day on Tuesday

Beating the Heat

It was a restful weekend for the team these past few days. We were able to work at Love Inc, helping them run a garage sale in their parking lot on Thursday and Friday. The kids loved working with the wonderful staff and volunteers, as well as meeting many locals throughout the sale.

Finishing Strong

Our last week in Caldwell Idaho. Because we had been exposed to COVID our plans changed. This taught us so many things. Always trust in God's plan...Always be willing to do what is before you....have a joyful heart....let your plans go....
